Former Member Teams

  • The Northwest Americans - won several titles over the years, and were the only American-based team in the PIJHL during their tenure. The Northwest Americans were techincally a semi-pro team where players had no dues or equipement fees (team revenue paid all hockey-related expenses) and received full tuition reimbursement. The Americans played at the Olympic View Arena in Mountlake Terrace, Washington (north Seattle). Recruiting was traditionally from American amateur hockey clubs in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, though later years included some Canadian-born, and many East-coast and Great Lakes players. The team folded in 2002.
  • Washington Totems - a Midget AAA team formerly used as a farm team for younger Northwest American players (older players were farmed to the Junior C team who played in Lynwood Ice Arena until the Americans folded). The Totems only survived a short tenure in the league, and left after 2 seasons when the NorPac/NPHL Junior-A Tier-III league was created in Washington State. When moving to NorPac, the Totems became a full-aged Junior team and have dominated the West division for several years. The totems were, and continue to be an amateur team with players paying dues of several thousand dollars each to cover training, coaching, and ice time costs and are responsible for their own equipment.
